“Voters deserve to know whether the will of the people — and not the interests of big corporations — is truly guiding the work of Congress.”
A public servant who has served her country at home and abroad
Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI-08) is a third-generation Michigander, former CIA officer, former Pentagon official, and served three tours in Iraq with CIA. She was key in Democrats’ effort to retake the majority, flipping a seat in a district that voted for both Mitt Romney and Donald Trump. A career public servant, Slotkin is fighting in Congress to lower the cost of health care, protect the environment, build our infrastructure, improve the nation’s security, and bring economic opportunity to Michigan.
A champion for campaign finance reform
In October, she helped organize an open letter to Congress from more than 100 House challengers demanding campaign and ethics reform be a top priority in 2019, and is an original co-sponsor of H.R.1, the For the People Act.
A critical re-election campaign
Slotkin was one of ECU’s top priority candidates for election in 2018, as ECU spent over a million dollars to help flip this district. Michigan’s 8th congressional district is a gerrymandered seat that voted for Obama in 2008 by five points, and elected Donald Trump by almost the same margin in 2016. ECU is proud to stand with Rep. Slotkin once again as she prepares for her next campaign.
